What's on TV? Monday, December 30, 1974

Miami must be an interesting place to spend the New Year, if you're into that kind of thing. I can't remember if we've ever traveled there for one of these TV weeks, but here we are now. The next couple of days will be filled with New Year's Eve celebrations, parades and football, so let's take a look at a day uncluttered with such festivities.

  1. Something from the game show front.

    December 31, in this case 1974, was the time that when Match Game'74 changes its date to '75. However, Match Game regular Charles Nelson Reilly was awol, but awol for a good reason. Charles would be on Broadway in the show "God's Favorite", which opened earlier in the month. That show last for about four months. In Chuck's place was the "Poet Laureate of Television" Nipsy Russell.

    Here is the actual episode from December 30.

    I also found a clip, or should I say blooper
    from that week's $10,000, one of the few surviving clips of ABC's $10,000 incarnation. A word of warning Tony Randall actually says something he really shouldn't (cuss word) Gotta love Dick Clark's laugh though. :)
